Complementary / Alternative Therapies

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) confirms what most of us intuitively know: “our emotional state affects our health” and “many people respond well to complementary treatments…” In other words, massage, energy work, pet therapy, music (and more) just make us feel and/or cope better with what is happening. Here are some of the known benefits of complementary alternatives:

  • Improve sleep
  • Reduce fatigue
  • Relieve stress
  • Relieve anxiety
  • Relieve pain
  • Alleviate nausea and vomiting
  • Improve focus
  • Provide a sense of empowerment
